First Launch Control

I just tried launch control for the first time and had a blast. Ran 4.8 in -20C with lots of spin on 265 Winter tires.

Looking forward to trying this with the sticky 3 season tires this Spring!!!

Re: First Launch Control

Out of curiosity (and may be a silly question), is there any tracking of how many launches you do in the computer of the car? Just wondering if you go crazy with it, will it come back to haunt you for resale?

Re: First Launch Control

Great question. I don't know. I'm taking my truck in for service in a week and will ask.

Re: First Launch Control

Just pulled a 4.4 at 1.03g.

Felt like I was going to pass out. Haha. How do people handle 2.3sec in super cars???
